WATCH: “Croatia: Solidarity Lost in Translation”, Hrvoje Butković | TEPSA Explainers

“In discussions about solidarity in the EU, Croatia is overwhelmingly placed at the receiving end of that solidarity, while discussions about Croatia as a provider of solidarity within the EU are almost non-existent.”

In this video Hrvoje Butković, Senior Research Associate at the Institute for Development and International Relations (IRMO), within the Department for European Integration, gives his analysis of how Croatia is benefitting from EU Membership, but also of what improvements need to be made in EU-Croatia integration, as well as attidues in Croatia towards membership.

This TEPSA Explainer is linked with the upcoming edition of the TEPSA Book “Euroscepticism and the Future of Europe: Views from the Capitals“, edited by Michael Kaeding, Johannes Pollak and Paul Schmidt.
